Mini-Stockings are not just for Christmas! Melissa Shirley Designs made them for Halloween, too.
These Mini-Stockings are from the Tricky Treater series (MSD 613 A-H)) by Melissa Shirley. There are a total of 8 in the series. I stitched these five:
- Pumkin (MSD 613-B)
- Spiderina (MSD 613-D)
- Ghostman (MSD 613-E)
- Gato (MSD 613-F)
- Candy Corn Man (MSD 613-G)
Here's a closer look:
Like I mentioned before, these might not be listed on Melissa's current website but she says she can paint any design from the catalogs.
I stitched these during Amy's canvas enhancement classes on Thursdays. They were finished by M's Canvashouse in Lexington, KY. They all have the same Black/White Glow in the Dark Kreinik trim. Each stocking has a different color moire fabric backing. They all have an opening at the top like a real stocking. I put them on the Black Feather Wreath to showcase the collection.
Notice the Black Cat Face... to the left of the wreath? I saw an episode on Martha Stewart where they were making treat bags out of paper mache. Their technique was my inspiration to make this Black Cat Face. Sweet!
Halloween will be upon us soon. I'll be back with the Halloween wrap-up.
Until then... Thanks, Robin
